Bundle Up

Hello, all! Here is a card made using a super fun new stamp set from Purple Onion Designs.


I love Carolyn's whimsical hand drawn images and this set is so cute! She has a really cool blog, too. Go visit her! =)


I decided to use the sentiment as my focal point and stamped it in Hawaiian Shores. The rest of the images were stamped in Aqua Mist on a Stamper's Select White card base. I didn't want the "background" to overpower the sentiment, so only parts of each of the images were colored.


To help the sentiment stand out a little more, I colored the middle one with the matching red on the scarves and added White Enamel Accents to the top of the letters hoping to make them look like they have been snowed on. To finish, little bits of Star Dust Stickles was added to the snowflakes.

That's all for now. Don't forget to check out the latest carolyndraws collections and more winter/holiday new releases HERE! For more inspiration using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog! =)

Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
